It's the third largest city in the country after Zürich and Geneva. Along with Zürich and Geneva, Basel is one of the cities in the world with the highest standards of living. It has a youthful vibe, with modern architecture, galleries, sculptures dotted around the cobbled streets and home to tennis star Roger Federer. Be sure to stroll along the city's blue waters on the Rhine River, visit heritage sites such as the Old Town, the Basel Cathedral and the city hall. It's well worth spending a few days exploring.
